Title

Article "Women's Liberation--Do Westhampton Women Need It?"

Description

Westhampton and Richmond College students were questioned on their opinions surrounding the topic of the Women’s Liberation Movement. Opinions such as, "I'd hate to fix my own flat tires!" were expressed by Westhamptons students. There appeared to be a lack of interest or care towards the subject. Sociology professor Dr. James Sartain believed it to be due to the lack of connection between individuals and the matter at hand. Many of the Westhampton students have “never been confronted with discriminating situations,” and additionally, “look forward to the marriage scene.” A majority of students believed the Women’s Liberation Movement to be too “radical” and opted out of declaring support. Many Richmond College students also had different opinions to share, both in favor and not in favor of the Women’s Liberation Movement.
